Well Steven Wilson produced Deliverance and Damnation. Not really a fan of most of Mr. Wilson's work, but of the Opeth albums I've heard, Damnation is probably my second favorite at the moment. It took time to grow on me, though.
To respond to the question in the thread's title, In Absentia is the only Porcupine Tree album of the ones I've heard that I can say I like and the same can be said about The Raven That Refused to Sing (and Other Stories) when it comes to Steven Wilson's solo output, so those would be my two suggestion, although In Absentia is likely more accessible even if the mastering on the CD version at least is pretty darn loud by my standards.
